Tripp Lake Camp Observes Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October 24, 2012 by Leslie Levy
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tripp Lake Camp supports the Tutu Project!
At Tripp Lake Camp we have a tradition of helping others. I have never been more proud of our girls than I was this summer, as our campers have created Project Pink in an effort to help women with breast cancer.
The idea stems from the story of The Tutu Project, which you may have seen on the Today Show. Author Bob Carey is self-publishing Ballerina, a collection of humorous stories and images of himself in a pink tutu. When his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, Bob embarked on this project as a way of dealing with a difficult situation by laughing at himself – hence the pink tutu – and sharing the laughter with others. The Tutu Project expanded to helping women with breast cancer who have no insurance to offset their medical expenses. (To learn more, visit thetutuproject.com.)
In support of this cause, the entire camp donned pink tutus, and we had a professional photographer take a few photos that we are making available in 16″ x 20″ poster size. We are also offering a pink TLC T-shirt. All proceeds will benefit The Tutu Project.
A Project Pink Order Form is posted here. We appreciate your consideration of this worthwhile project and supporting our tradition of helping others in need.
